In response to the escalating issue of electronic waste (E-waste) in India, Ecoreco has undertaken a proactive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaign, “E-waste Mukt Bharat: Swachh Bharat.” This initiative, which commenced on October 2, 2015, is aligned with the vision of a ‘Clean India’ inspired by Mahatma Gandhi.
Ecoreco, in association with Times Environ (An initiative of Times of India Group) has pledged to donate computers to the Mumbai branch of the National Association for Blind. Funds generated from the e-waste donations of large enterprises have been used for creating Computer Lab for the NAB besides this Ecoreco has done similar such programs for Cancer Patients Aid Association, Handicap Organization, Schools & other educational institutions.
Eco-Bins offer a convenient and eco-friendly solution for individuals and small E-waste generators to dispose of their electronic devices safely and responsibly. Our goal is to set up 100,000 “Eco-Bins” nationwide, strategically located in educational and spiritual institutions.
Ecoreco’s program complements the government’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan mission. By encouraging people to deposit their E-waste items into these designated bins, we aim to facilitate responsible disposal in places frequently visited by the public, such as temples, mosques, churches, gurudwaras, schools, and colleges. Collected E-waste is then channeled to Ecoreco Take Back Points for proper recycling. To further bolster this initiative, we invite corporate entities to participate in our CSR program by sponsoring these Eco-Bins. With a minimal sponsorship fee of Rs 10,000 per bin, corporations, regardless of size, can actively contribute to the national effort of E-waste collection and support the ‘Swachh Bharat’ mission.
Ecoreco is at the forefront of cultivating meaningful partnerships with corporations. We actively collaborate with businesses, seamlessly integrating E-waste management into their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs. Our commitment to social responsibility extends to tangible actions that make a difference in the lives of those in need. As part of our CSR initiatives, we actively engage in donating computers to organizations dedicated to making a positive impact. These beneficiaries include esteemed institutions like the National Association for the Blind, Cancer Patients Aid Association, Handicap Organizations, Schools, and many more. We believe in measuring corporate success not just in profits but in the positive influence on society and the environment. Ecoreco is dedicated to creating a more sustainable and inclusive world.
Ecoreco is committed to uplifting the lives of informal sector workers, commonly referred to as ‘Kabadies,’ who are involved in E-waste collection. These individuals often live in impoverished conditions and face health challenges due to their profession. To address these issues, we have introduced the ‘Ecoreco Enviro Education’ program, with the aim of training approximately 300,000 Kabadies over the next decade. This training will equip them with the knowledge and skills needed for safe E-waste handling, benefitting their health and the environment. Moreover, this initiative will improve their earnings, provide access to education for their children, and enhance social well-being.
Eco Recycling Ltd has collaborated with BookMyJunk, a premier on-demand junk removal service, to offer a seamless and environmentally conscious answer for conscientious e-waste disposal.
